Tritelia laxa in foreground. Poppies, Gilia, Yarrow in background.

This is particularly nice. It's a Bitter Orange seedling that I grew from a seed. I tried with about a half dozen seeds and two grew. For some reason, I figured it was impossible to or at least very difficult to grow citrus from seed. Not so for this one. Bitter orange is used to make marmalade and in Persian food culture (I got it from my brother's Persian in-laws). It is also used as a root stock for more mainstream citrus.
